Baseball odds on Saturday are very close between the Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers.
The White Sox are considered the stronger team by most people that bet baseball betting odds but the Rangers get respect when they are at home.
Baseball odds should be exciting on the second game of this weekend series since both teams can score runs. The White Sox have Carlos Quentin and a power packed offense while the Rangers have led the league in runs scored for much of the season as baseball odds stats tell us. The Rangers have held their own at home against the White Sox winning six of the last ten games as baseball odds stats show.
Chicago has been up and down this season in baseball odds but in the American League Central that is not a disaster. The White Sox look to have the most talent in the division so if they can find some pitching depth at the back end of their rotation they could be dangerous in baseball betting odds. Right now going with Jose Contreras and Bartolo Colon is definitely not the answer at #4 and #5 in the starting rotation. The White Sox can put up some offensive numbers though in baseball odds with Jermaine Dye, Carlos Quentin, Paul Konerko and Jim Thome.
Texas has a ton of offense and very little pitching in baseball betting odds. The Rangers have the very dangerous Josh Hamilton hitting home runs and even Nelson Cruz has joined the power brigade. The problem for Texas in baseball betting odds is a pitching staff that doesn’t scare anyone. If Kevin Millwood is your top starter then you know things are bad. And that is not to say anything bad against Millwood considering he has been very good so far this season versus the baseball odds.
With these two powerful offenses you would think that the over would be the way to go with the total in baseball odds. Last year in their final two meetings that was the case with 23 runs and 16 runs being scored in the two games but in the last ten games at Texas the under is actually 6-3-1 in baseball odds. It sure is tough to take the under in baseball odds in any game the Rangers play at home though so look for this total to be high.
